The truth is still out there.

“The X-Files” will be back on Fox as a six-episode event series with its original stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson, the network announced Tuesday. The short-run revival of one of TV’s most successful sci-fi series ever comes 13 years after ending its nine-season run in prime time.

Series creator and executive producer Chris Carter will oversee the new version.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” Carter said in a statement. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

Production on the series will begin this summer. Fox has not set an airdate.

Fox Television Group co-chairs Dana Walden and Gary Newman said in January that they were open to revisiting some of the 20th Century Fox TV studio’s best-known franchises from the past. There have also been discussions about reboots of “Prison Break” and “24” due to their popularity on online streaming services.

“The X-Files,” which premiered on Fox in 1993, has been one of the most durable properties. The series about two FBI agents — one a believer in extraterrestrials, the other a skeptical scientist — who investigate paranormal phenomena, became the basis of two theatrical films released 10 years apart.
